    Hi everybody!

    Ken, I'm not totally sure about your puzzle yet but Sponge Bob is a (funny) cartoon, the skull apparantly belongs to a jester... I'd think funny/silly/strange/entertaining? I'm not sure what the letter S is referring to.

    Maybe it's something straightforward like Fun by Hardy Amies?

    I'll check back in a few hours to see if this made any sense, will probably have to call it a night after that

    Nice to see you Guus!

    No, not FUN though. But you have the right idea of a word that links all together and can be applied to describe each pic.

    Something that popped into my mind: Icon by Gorilla Perfume. The letter S would then add up to make it 'icons' - which kind of describes these two pics. Let's see.

    Not Icon or Expression. Each pic is a representation of its type and can be described by an English word. All three pic representations can be classified by the same single word--which is very close to the fragrance name.

    Although the fragrance name is not in English and the fragrance name actually has a different meaning than the word the types represented getting the English word will get you to the fragrance name as the English word is nearly spelled the same as the fragrance name.

    The phrases I came up with Spongebob/Hamlet/S were "Funny Bones" and "Cartoon Characters"

    The closest fragrance I could think up for the pairing of these pictures is "One Man Show".

    Good guesses Grottola but...

    A cartoon character, an actor playing a Shakespeare character and a typed (or printed) character 'S'

    Evangeline swoops in with the win!

    Caractère
    by Daniel Hechter it is. Very good!

    New puzzle:

    Fragrance name only



    There are two fragrances with the same name in the directory. I'm going to be at work most of the day, so I won't be able to see guesses/answers till approx. 12 hours from now.

    No, not Canaletto. The artist's first name though *does* start with "C." He was born in France, but spent a lot of time in Italy. And he was dead before Canaletto had even been born. Both Canaletto and "C" are known for their landscape paintings.

    Well, with these generous clues I think I figured out the painting:
    Claude Lorrain: Embarkation of the Queen Sheba

    Could the perfume be one of the two Queen of Sheba ones?

    Both saripatates and darkdreams are correct! It is "The Embarkation of the Queen of Sheba" by Claude Lorrain. And the 'fume name is indeed Queen of Sheba of which both BPAL and Perfumer's Guild have a version.

    I had never heard of Claude Lorrain before today. I feel like I could step into his painting. I looked at some of Canaletto's, and I like those too!

    Yay! Thanks Saripatates, that was a good puzzle.

    Next puzzle, name only, should be an easy one.

    Really an easy one Kiliwia?

    Let's try Discovery by Conroy or Conquest for Men by Agatha Brown.
